I mean, let's use an example:
The year 2003 and 2008 feels a world apart to me, it was only 5 years but you might as well have inserted a hundred years between those 2 years because that's how different it feels to me. I was 17 and 22 back then.
But fast forward to the present date: 2015
Honestly, 2015 does not feel too different to me than 2010, for sure there are some changes, but overall, I cannot feel much change, all the changes are more evolutionary rather than revolutionary, 2015 just feels like an updated version of 2010, rather than a completely different world that I feel between 2003 and 2008.
I just want to know if anyone shares this view, that 2015 is indeed quite similar to 2010, and the changes is not quite as dramatic as those between 2003 and 2008?

It's because for a example a year becomes a smaller fraction of your life for every year older you get. When you're little a year seems like forever because you've nothing to really compare it to, you haven't lived that long. For example when you're 10 it's a tenth of your whole life, but when you're twenty it's only a twentieth, etc. So it seems like less time from your perspective. Also from the ages of 17 to 22 a lot probably happened in your life; a lot changed for you personally. You were probably still going through puberty even, so your brain was developing really rapidly and your awareness of stuff probably changed a lot.0

It depends on each person's personal life. In my case, 2010 and 2015 are completely different. I was a minor in 2010 (16 years old) and I didn't have many privileges I have today as an adult. Not counting that I was on High school and today it's college... my life changed completely. It really depends on many things.0
